Vegetable Garden: Getting Things Planted

We had a bit of a false start to our garden with the seeds we started indoors. When I got my wisdom teeth out, I must have forgotten to water them or something and almost everything died... It's all a learning experience and we enjoyed watching them grow. 

Around Easter, we started setting up the raised beds, lining them with cardboard, and then adding in some bags of dirt. I severely underestimated the amount of dirt that I would need and barely filled one bed halfway. We planted some of the beans outside, but that ended up being another fail due to the weather (womp, womp). Despite all the failures so far this season, we're still enjoying ourselves. The girls love watering our plants, digging in the dirt, and running around outside.

My dad gifted me a dirt delivery for Mother's day and it was the perfect gift. The girls loved it! They climbed all over the pile while I worked hard filling the beds. I'll use the remainder of the dirt to fill in some wonky spots in our yard and front garden.

Cora's school had a fundraiser with Benken, so I purchased a flat through them and picked up a bunch of vegetables. I picked some tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, sweet peppers, bell peppers, spaghetti squash, zucchini, and some watermelon. I'm loving how easy it is to start a garden from plants.

I didn't really plan the garden out much, but I'm giving each plant plenty of room and I'm hoping it just works out well. We started a couple seeds last week and planted them early this week. We still have a couple plants to put out here, but it's shaping up nicely so far this year.
